Thank you for joining us at AviaDev Africa

2021 marked the fifth edition of AviaDev Africa and we were delighted to welcome over 1200+ attendees from 80+ countries to join in proactive discussions that will enhance air connectivity to, from, and within the continent. With many aviation stakeholders facing uncertainty, this was a chance for the African aviation community to come together to forge new collaborations and partnerships to ensure that Africa remains connected regionally and internationally.

We successfully delivered over 250 route development meetings and we look forward to hearing news of new collaborations as a result of these discussions.  We further enhanced networking opportunities by including roundtable sessions and networking opportunities within the programme.

Thanks to our 2021 Sponsors
